Challenge

The project brings rehabilitation services to persons with disabilities in the places where they live, aiming at their optimal self-reliance and social integration. We plan to train an average of 25 volunteers each for 20 of the most depressed municipalities in the region in the basic techniques of physical rehabilitation and of referrals for specialized medical interventions like surgeries for cleft, cataract and orthopedic deformities.

Solution

If we have 25 trained community based rehabilitation volunteers in each of the 20 targeted municipalities some 10,000 persons with disabilities will receive the rehabilitation services which they don't receive now.

Long-Term Impact

10,000 PWDs will have a more comfortable existence and be optimally self-reliant, with their deformities corrected, provided with basic life skills, their basic self confidence boosted, and fully integrated in their local communities.
